On sites like Amazon and other places, that sell music
online, they usually post links to previews of the
featured tracks as RAM files, which are actually text
files, containing direct links to audio files.

For example, on Amazon the preview link usually
downloads hurl.ram file, which contains a direct link
to audio file as a text string:

My request is -> is it possible to make MPC
automatically follow the links and download and play
assosiated files ?

P.S. I love MPC and have made it a default player for
everything it supports. But the problem is with those
RAM files - MPC downloads them, but plays nothing,
because it does not follow the links.
So I have to run Microsoft Media Player and to open
the RAM files in it, 'cause MMP does this task.
